first_imgPERTH, Australia (CMC):Chris Jordan and Kieron Pollard shared three wickets but failed with the bat as they saw Perth Scorchers beat Adelaide Strikers by 49 runs in the Big Bash League yesterday.Jordan, the Barbados-born England all-rounder, captured two wickets for 48 runs from his allotted four overs, and Pollard added one for 10 from one over, as the Scorchers posted 197 for seven from their allocation of 20 overs.Jordan’s former England teammate Ian Bell hit six fours and two sixes in the top score of 61 from 42 balls for the Scorchers, after they were put in to bat in the fifth match of the competition played at the Western Australian Cricket Association.Pollard was dismissed for four off former Australia left-arm fast bowler Mitchell Johnson and Jordan was trapped leg before wicket to discarded Aussie spinner Ashton Agar, as the Strikers were restricted to 149 for nine in their 20 overs. It was their second straight defeat.The Strikers have eight days off before they face Sydney Sixers on Old Year’s Day on home soil at the Adelaide Oval.last_img read more

President Weah Now Has the Opportunity to Act to Make a Difference; He Should…

first_imgThe Daily Observer in its yesterday’s July 9, 2018 edition reported that House Speaker Bhoffal Chambers has called for the adaption of a single currency, preferably the United States dollar as the country’s official medium of exchange.Speaker Chambers, reacting to expressed public concerns about the continued depreciation of the Liberian dollar against the United States dollar said monetary control in the Liberian economy is seriously challenged by the loose availability of the two Liberian currencies in multiple styles and values of denominations.The Speaker further laid blame at the feet of former President who, according to him, created what he called an economic gulag by printing excessive amounts of local banknotes much against the advice of the Legislature.We must however take Speaker Chambers’ blame-casting with a pinch of salt because he was part and parcel of the government of the day as a sitting law maker with the power to approve or reject bills, agreements, treaties, conventions and the list goes on.Needless to say, blame-casting without taking the necessary corrective measures will amount to nothing more than an exercise in verbal calisthenics. We all agree that there is too much money, Liberian dollars that is, chasing so few US dollars so prices of commodities and just about everything else are high and keep climbing higher.But how much time do we take off to reflect on the many little ways in which are going wrong? For example, in face of the fact that the volume of Liberian dollars on the market is huge, what can explain the troubling fact that the banks or rather the Central Bank is still permitting the circulation of mutilated notes?The Daily Observer notes that there is virtually not a single local commercial bank to where an individual can go to have his mutilated banknote exchanged. But around Monrovia and in other places around the country, there are itinerant, mutilated banknote exchangers advertising their wares, new money for old money-“Money tear-tear” they call it.Just where else in the world can an individual become stuck with mutilated banknotes that are rejected by traders and cannot be exchanged at any local bank or the Central Bank? The Daily Observer knows of no other country but Liberia.Are our financial experts virtually incapable of finding solution to this problem? What role then can be expected of the Central Bank whose function it is to regulate money supply? Does it ever occur to policy makers that permitting such practice to continue is only exacerbating our economic woes?From our perspective based on insider sources and based on careful observations, mutilated notes being kept in circulation is a criminal but profit making enterprise involving bank officials and employees. This newspaper believes that if President Weah is indeed serious about reversing the current downturn and rapid depreciation of the Liberian dollar, he must act to halt this practice forthwith because it is hurting the economy and hurting the people.If there is a problem of excess liquidity of Liberian dollars, part of the excess is sure to be mutilated banknotes which for no clear reasons are being recycled with the apparent acquiescence of the Central Bank. All of this is hurting the people and should stop.Another troubling concern and a contributory factor to the current economic malaise is the refusal of the Liberian Revenue Authority (LRA) to accept the Liberian dollar in tax payment. This duality is not only contributing to the scarcity of US dollars on the Liberian market, it is also undermining confidence in the Liberian dollar as legal tender, rendering it virtually worthless.Even driver licenses, passports and other taxes for example are paid for in US dollars although ordinary Liberians do not earn US dollars, neither do they transact daily business in US dollars. Why then should conditions improve when such situations are allowed to persist?Why, for example, does the LRA double-tax Liberians who import goods into the country, is a question which has been asked time and again but yet without answers. As a way of improving efficiency in tax revenue collection, the government of Liberia since the 1980’s has had standing agreements with pre-shipment inspection companies.Initially it was the Societe General de Surveillance (SGS) and since Charles Taylor, it has been the Bureaux Veritas (BIVAC) both being reputable foreign companies. Under those arrangements, for example, at the request of an importer, through the Ministry of Commerce the BIVAC inspects the goods destination bound for Liberia and assesses a dutiable tax based on price of the item or commodity which the importer pays to the Government of Liberia through the BIVAC.However, upon arrival of the goods, the LRA again demands the importer to pay additional tax using what it calls the “Tally Blue Book” as a basis to determine what the LRA considers the applicable duty.Because of this strange but illegal practice, many Liberians are reported to have lost thousands of dollars’ worth of goods or property simply because they could not afford the additional taxes imposed by the LRA plus unusually high demurrage (storage) fees charged by APM terminals for keeping the goods in storage for a few days.And lest we be remiss, Executive Order 84 allowing foreign vessels to fish within 8 miles offshore, curtailing the ability of local fishermen to serve the needs of the people, still remains in force not having been repealed.But in all fairness to President Weah, these are all inherited problems from his predecessor. However he now has the opportunity to act to make a difference, he should and he must and must do so with a great sense of urgency.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Converting Weight-loss to Wealth: Agro-Startup Taps One of Many Moringa Miracles

first_imgBefore the birth of her third son, Sandra Perkins-Lighe worked tirelessly to keep herself from growing overweight. She would consume selected nutritional food, and hit fitness gym to burn excess calories. But her hobbies were disrupted after giving birth to her third son in 2017. Although it was a good news to have borne a child, overweight soon became a problem that introduced emotional stress for Sandra.“Months back in 2017, right after I had my third son, I became overweight (168lbs to 203.5lbs); I gained 35.5 pounds (lbs), which I felt was unhealthy living,” Said Sandra. “I then decided to embark on a personal research to enable me live my health dream [eating natural and healthy foods].”In her search to drop weight and connect to her hobbies, she discovered a product that did not only give her a satisfactory answer but the agro-startup CEO said that the result of what she got from consuming moringa and ginger was worth sharing with others.“After I [saw] that I can be helped by such superfood, I immediately start to share moringa with my household. I later shared with my friends and I said to myself; ‘if this superfood can help my friends then the entire country can be helped too,” she said.“Interestingly, to help others, I needed to make it my line of business, so I did.”Early 2018 she registered Zaag Natural Enterprise her startup that produces 100% moringa and ginger powder.Moringa can be consumed for nutritional as well as medicinal purposes, as it helps in the prevention of diabetes, heart disease, anemia, arthritis, liver disease, and respiratory, skin, and digestive disorders.For many Agro-startups like Zaag Natural, access to quality packaging in Liberia is a major challenge.Sandra’s agro-startup hand harvests, washes, dries, grinds and manually packages moringa. She however disclosed that electricity, machinery, and packaging materials are challenges that prevent her startup from scaling up the weight-loss product.“Doing business in Liberia indeed has challenges, ranging from electricity in certain parts of the country to availability of machinery, but of all challenges faced, I consider packaging to be the most. Getting your products packaged well is very costly but also, it is difficult to find all of those materials you need in the country,” said Sandra.In spite of her prevailing challenges, Zaag Natural’s CEO remains optimistic about the future, as she plans to continue sensitizing the Liberian population about moringa’s countless nutritional and medicinal benefits.“My further plans are to create awareness about the tremendous health benefits of moringa. I also want to have my product represented in all shops, stores, supermarkets, and marketplaces,” Sandra said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Report: Pelle at the double as ten-man Southampton win at Stoke

first_img1 Graziano Pelle ended a 12-game goal drought with a fine brace to lead Southampton to a 2-1 victory over Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium.The Italian striker scored twice in the first-half, finding the net after a long wait with a flicked header and a neat low finish.It was game on early in the first-half when Marko Arnautovic pulled a goal back for hosts Stoke, but it wasn’t enough for Mark Hughes’ side.Pelle opened the scoring after just 12 minutes, though his goal was cruel on young English goalkeeper Jack Butland.The Stoke glovesman first denied Pelle with a brilliant one-handed save, as the striker’s thumping nodded effort looked destined for the top bin. But he was beaten from the following corner as Pelle ghosted in front of him and glanced a header into the net.It was 2-0 on the half-hour mark, as Pelle latched onto Dusan Tadic’s cross to fire a low shot past Butland.Tadic could have made it three and made the points safe before the break, but paid the price for his own hesitance.He simply HAD to score after being played clean through, but he cut back on his favoured right foot and just took too long to let fly, allowing Geoff Cameron to fly in with a perfectly timed tackle.Arnautovic gave Stoke hope of a comeback with a goal shortly after the re-start. A good move fed in Ibrahim Afellay on the left wing, and his cross was well met by the Austrian forward ,who slammed in at the near post.Stoke came forward in search on the equaliser, but couldn’t find their way past the Saints’ solid back-four, with Virgil van Dijk proving a rock at the back.Is was the Dutch centre-back’s brilliant last-gasp challenge which denied Mame Biram Diouf a chance from a wide open position, while Fraser Forster was forced into his first real save to palm away a strong Arnautovic drive.But the Saints had their chances too, with James Ward-Prowse hitting the crossbar with a fine free-kick attempt.Southampton found themselves down to ten men when substitute Sadio Mane was dismissed for an elbow in stoppage-time, but luckily for them it was too late for it to have an impact as the visitors held on.

DONE DEAL! Bournemouth sign Chelsea defender Nathan Ake for club-record fee

first_img💬”The fans haven’t seen the best of me yet. I know there is a lot of things I still have to work on.”➡ https://t.co/Z9BJmioJmB#afcb 🍒 pic.twitter.com/rDD7c8aWRs— AFC Bournemouth 🍒 (@afcbournemouth) June 30, 2017 1 Bournemouth have signed Chelsea defender Nathan Ake for a club record fee, the Premier League club have announced.The 22-year-old, who spent a successful loan spell at the Vitality Stadium club last season, has returned to the south coast in a permanent deal – penning a long-term contract.The Cherries have reportedly paid around £20million for the Netherlands international.Ake joins former Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe, who completed a move to Bournemouth on Thursday as manager Eddie Howe continues his summer recruitment ahead of the 2017-18 season.Ake scored three goals in 12 appearances for Bournemouth last season before being recalled in January by Chelsea, where he featured sporadically as Antonio Conte’s side won the Premier League title and reached the FA Cup final. Ake told the Bournemouth website: “I had a great time here last season so I’m really happy to be back.“It’s an exciting challenge. Chelsea is a great club and I learned so much there but this is a new step and the right place for me to develop even more.“The fans haven’t seen the best of me yet. I always set the bar high so I know there is a lot of things I still have to work on.“With the help of the manager here I know I can keep improving and become a better player.”Howe added: “I am delighted that we have completed the signing of Nathan on a permanent basis.“He is someone we know all about, having had a very successful loan spell here last season.“Nathan is an outstanding young player with a fantastic attitude and a great desire to learn and develop.“He has a very bright future ahead of him and I’m very pleased to say that future is here.”Ake joined Chelsea from Feyenoord as a 16-year-old in 2011 but after breaking into the first team the following year had loan spells with Reading and Watford because of limited opportunities at Stamford Bridge.Having played for his country at every level from Under-15 he has made two appearances for the senior side in 2017.
